I’m working on a sweater called Pearl by Helga Isager, and I’m confused by how to make the raised bobble type stitch she (confusingly) calls a “pearl stitch” (not a “purl”)-- here are the instructions:
Knit into front and back of stitch 3 times so there are 6 sts in one st. Then pull 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th sts over the 1st st. A pearl has now been made.
This is a photo of the finished pearls.
I know how to knit into the front and back of the stitch. My questions are:
After knitting into the front and back 3 times, I assume I move the worked stitch off of my left needle.
Which stitch is the 1st? On my right needle, the one closest to my needle tip? or the 1st one I made? I’m struggling with which stitches to pull over which. Do I move the 6 new stitches to the my left needle and pull the stitches over each other from there? (I feel like this is correct, but the instructions don’t mention moving the stitches back to the left needle to pull them over each other.)
